Mini Facelifts Provide an Alternative to Significant Plastic Surgery

mini facelift A mini facelift is similar to a traditional facelift in that it addresses sagging skin on the lower face and upper neck. However, unlike a full facelift procedure, the mini facelift is a more limited surgical procedure that is best suited for those with less advanced sagging of the lower third of the face, to tighten and remove sagging skin (jowls). It’s a corrective procedure with smaller adjustments at the hairline to restore a youthful and natural appearance to the face.

Targeting Concerns on the Lower Face

The results of a mini facelift are noticed mostly at the jaw and upper neck. Ideal patients for this procedure are those looking to correct early to moderate skin sagging at the jawline and upper neck.

The procedure utilizes a shorter incision and far less surgery. However, it is still a surgical procedure with the related post-surgical recovery and follow-up to ensure everything heals properly.

As with other types of surgery, there can be side effects. Dr Diwan and her skilled team at the Laser and Skin Surgery Center are aware of the risks associated with this procedure and take the proper precautions for the safety of our patients. 

Credentials Matter and Influence Results

The expertise of the surgeon makes a big difference in the results. Generally, mini facelifts are performed by a dermatological surgeon. Dr Diwan is board certified and she is a fellowship trained dermatolgic surgeon. She has the requisite training and years of experience to perform the procedure skillfully and deliver great results. The procedure is performed in the office with local anesthesia.  Patients typically need a week of downtime away from work and daily routines but improvement continues, usually, for a few weeks.
